Removing Stubborn Carpet Adhesive

We are installing hardwood and removed the carpet only to find an adhesive that is impossible to remove. We have tried everything but it's like concrete. It will chip some in places and will not bulge in other places. Can we install the hardwood over this? What can we do to try and remove the glue?

You can soften the adhesive with boiling water or a blow dryer

Thanks a bushel!! We tried that to no avail. We finally used Goof Off Adhesvise and that did do the trick with about 2 applications,but with a lot of hard elbow grease. I appreciate all of the replies!!

My friend just did this at his house a few months ago. He used boiling water repeatedly with a scraper. It took a lot of work.

it is nice that you found your own answer and I hope your new floors will be beautiful.
It is strange but Goof-Off is one of those things that no home should be without.
